With nothing to see in the deepening gloom but swirling dust and smoke, I drove down to "Cuppa" and parked on the dried mud flats of an empty dam next to a dirt track in a bare earth paddock where I set up my camera on a tripod, [18 January 2003] [picture] / Jeff Cutting

Cutting, Jeff, 1945- Blood red noon, photography of the Brindabella & southern ACT fires of January 2003.

Summary

"Cuppa entrance track, Naas Road at 1345 hrs 18:01:2003. With the onset of extreme fire weather, the extended free burning flanks of the Stockyard, Bendora and Broken Cart fires blew up into massive running blazes sending dense smoke plumes to blacken the skies to the south of Canberra. It was extraordinary, for I had seen midnight last turned into midday on the southern side of Tennent, and now the midday hours turned to midnight on the northern side - quite bizarre!"--Note from the photographer.
